Are you sure? Looks like this is a RHEL5 kernel (from your uname)

What do you mean by conceding with 2.6.23-mm1?

LTP mailing list would be a better place to ask

These are good results, but analysis of the results will be very
useful. For example

1. You could list the diff with a LTP run in parent namespace vs
   within the container
2. diff b/w LTP run in parent namespace vs a kernel without containers
   enabled (this would obviously imply that the containers test cases
   won't run)

You could then try and get to the root cause of the failure(s) and
report them.

It would be useful to post the same results to the LTP mailing list
and I
